"Gaslight Days: Book 1 - From Over the Seas" by Edward Forde Hickey is published

A nostalgic account of growing up as a kid among the ruined streets of post-war London

About the Book:

A chance to delve into the minds of children and adults among the ruined streets of post-war London. The streets were our playground with not a car in sight, where we played all day.

On Sundays, bugle boy bands marched passed us and in the evening the military band raised our spirits.

Life was never dull. Our parents took us to the zoo and for boat rides on the Serpentine.

About the Author:

Edward Forde Hickey is a retired Headteacher and has written nine books to date. This is the first book in a trilogy of memoirs about his life growing up in London.
Edward lives in Kent with his wife. They have three sons. During the years 1962 until 1998, he taught in inner city primary schools (laterally as a headteacher for 18 years). In early life, he was a pop star with Decca records (see 'Eddie Hickey/Lady May') and later sang with the Glenside Ceilidhe Band in The Galtymore Dancehall, Cricklewood (1965/1975).

Born of Irish parents during the Blitz of London, he spent his first five years of life nurtured and moulded by his grandmother in the foothills above Dolla, near Nenagh in County Tipperary. His grandmother is and always was his inspiration; she had a natural gift with words.

Edward has always been interested in folklore and the Irish past (its music, dance and literature). He was a champion Irish step-dancer. He taught and adjudicated it, even as far afield as in Australia, before dedicating himself to research into hillside communities in north Tipperary, from where he brought back tapes of original songs for The English Folk Dance and Song Society.

He keeps a small farm in the foothills of north Tipperary and visits it often.
